    Re: Wireless not working on ThinkPad X220

    Thanks praseodym.
    I installed the linux-headers and images in the repository,
    but this didn't solve the issue.

    Other ideas?

    Try to unload this module:
    Code:
    sudo rmmod thinkpad_acpi
    If the system crashes, reboot.

    Now check the solutions from above again, starting with
    Code:
    sudo rfkill unblock all

    Did you check the switch on the left side (front)?

    ..the awkward moment when I feel completely stupid..
    of course it was the switch.. (..it took me a while to understand which was
    the switch though...)

    Sorry to have bothered you, and thanks for the patience!!!
